"A charming ode (with recipes) to eating well and locally, on $40 dollars per week, from a recently unemployed food-journalism veteran. In 2009, Robin Mather found herself unemployed. She consequently moved to rural Michigan, where she committed to eating three home-cooked, seasonal, and local meals a day. In essays that chronicle a year of her ambitious project, Mather explores the confusion surrounding local eating and examines how often we fail to pay attention to the seasons that surround us. With 150 winning recipes such as Lemon-Tarragon Pickled asparagus and Greek-Marinated Grilled Leg of Lamb, Mather draws on her rich kitchen knowledge, honed by years as a food writer. This narrative-cookbook hybrid shares encouraging advice for aspiring locavores, offering both the virtues of kitchen thrift and the pleasures of cooking well"--
